Gets or sets the element with the specified key.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System..::..Object
The key of the element to get or set.
Property ValueType: System..::..Object
The element with the specified key, or nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the key does not exist.
This property provides the ability to access a specific element in the collection by using the following syntax: myCollection[key].
You can also use the property to add new elements by setting the value of a key that does not exist in the dictionary (for example, myCollection["myNonexistentKey"] = myValue). However, if the specified key already exists in the dictionary, setting the property overwrites the old value. In contrast, the Add method does not modify existing elements.
